Details

"Ponca", marl and sandstone flysch, is what makes the Colli Orientali's wines unique. At the Rodaro winery, meticulous work in their terraced vineyards and the willingness to experiment have given rise to many unique and different wines, with this spumante being the latest addition to Paolo Rodaro's production.
Harvested in September at 130meters elevation from his Romain terraced vineyard, this spumante is made with the classic (champanoise) method. Very fine mousse, with yeastiness and notes of toasted nuts and bread, mineral driven and clean as can be expected from a zero dosage Brut Nature.

Subregion

Colli Orientali del Friuli DOC


Viticulture has flourished here since the days of ancient Rome, in the wine region now known as Friuli-Venizia Giulia. Best known for its white wines, the varieties Sauvignon Blanc, Verduzzo, Pinot Grigio, Pinot Bianco and Ribolla Giallo play a supporting role to the primary grape-type, the Friuliano (formerly known as Tocai). Merlot is the leading red wine variety, although new plantations of Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Pignolo, Refosco, Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso and Schioppettino have led to a total surface of 35% under vines producing red wine. Fhe area of Corno di Rosazzo, within the DOC Colli Orientali del Friuli, is famous for its terroir, rich in arenaceous and marn-clay, that gives an unmistakable flavor to the wines.
